ALL IN WHITE

Clearly I’ve been going through an all-white phase these past few days!! White is always my go-to color. If I see a sweater, a top, a romper — you name it — that comes in multiple hues, my first choice of color is always white/cream. It’s a color that goes with everything. It just looks so relaxed and chic! The only downside is that white clothing can be sheer and you have to be careful not to get dirt, food or any other messy things on it! I sure don’t want to look like a slob!!

This was the outfit I wore to visit my aunt and cousins in Rockwood, Pa., a small country town with a population of 954. There isn’t too much to do there (Walmart is probably the town hot spot) , but it’s always nice catching up with my family! It was in the upper 60s there so I needed something to wear over my playsuit. I decided to add my white button-down shirt from Free People (which I love!!) and then my cream colored floral loafers to add a hint of color! I was so comfortable for the 2 1/2 hour drive, yet still looked stylish. It was a win-win!!

WHAT’S UP DOC?

This is my fourth time wearing these Dr. Martens, yet they still squeak when I walk! Guess I still have some breaking in to do!! Seriously, with every step there’s a low creaking noise coming from my feet! I’m like one of those obnoxious elementary students who has to twist and turn their feet after coming in from a wet playground, ensuring that I squeak the entire way back to the classroom – - except I’m not in control of the squeaking! But hey, at least the boots look good, right?!

I decided to go for an all-white outfit pairing my white Aritzia tee with a lace Urban Outfitters skirt (both of which were purchased on sale I might add!) I added the Dr. Martens to grunge up the look a bit; I didn’t want to look too girly. This outfit would also look great with a pair of heels! The extra height would help to elongate the body. Since the skirt hits slightly below the knee, it can work against me, making my legs appear shorter. But I wasn’t looking to dress my ensemble up too much. That’s why I stayed with my Docs!!

DITSY FLORAL

Surprise!! Another floral dress. I just can’t get enough of it! This dress is great, even for those of you who may not be a fan of floral. Since the print is made up of tiny flowers it doesn’t overwhelm! This dress is also even more beautiful in-person than it was online, which is rare! Many times the models, lighting and editing can make the clothing look so amazing online, but once you open your new package the color or material aren’t what you were expecting. Nothing’s worse than that disappointment you feel when the clothing you’ve been waiting for just doesn’t meet your expectations! Luckily this dress didn’t let me down. I hadn’t realized how colorful the print was until I saw the dress in-person. There are hints of purple, orange, red, green and blue — basically every color of the rainbow. Two of my favorite things all in one (rainbows and florals!) I initially had a belt on to give myself a waistline, but I wasn’t really feeling it. So I decided to just go with the natural flow of the dress. I like the loose feel. Some may say it’s shapeless, but to each his own! Fashion is a direct reflection of yourself and this outfit is very me!

GOOD ‘OL ELTON

I’ve expressed my love for Reformation before, but I just have to reiterate! If I had the money, I’d probably own almost every piece they create! Everything from the dresses and jumpsuits to the basic tees are right up my alley. Each piece is simple but with a unique twist. Whether it’s an open back, cutouts or a deep V neckline, each piece is beautiful enough to be worn alone — without accessories or embellishments! I had been eyeing up this Elton dress for quite some time and when I got my first paycheck of the summer, I could no longer resist! There are so many reasons I love this dress. First of all, I love the floral print. Secondly, I really like the slight hi-lo hemline of the dress. I also like the hook and eye closures in the front and the lower neckline! This piece is so different than any other dress I own.

Everything about this brand inspires me. They’re eco-friendly and still fashion forward. I’m slowly building up my Reformation collection and I can’t wait to add to it!!

BLACK BEAUTY

I’d have to say that this is one of my more risqué outfit choices. I love sheer pieces, but I tend to layer them over items that aren’t sheer so there isn’t much skin showing. But today I decided to take more of a risk with this ensemble. I only wore my black LF bralette under the sheer American Eagle tank (which I got for $8 from Plato’s Closet by the way!) I decided to keep the outfit monochromatic and added my black vintage shorts I found in Seattle and my new black booties! I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to sport this look on campus — I may get some awkward stares — but when the weather’s hot, the less clothes the better!!
